Igor Zax to moderate a panel at Alternative and Receivables Finance Conference

Igor Zax, Managing Director of Tenzor Ltd., is going to moderate a panel at “Alternative and Receivables Finance” conference in London 11 May 2015, organized by BCR Publishing.

The panel topic is : Optimising product innovation and market differentiation in the receivables and alternatives space

The traditional products are not growing much if at all at the smaller end of the SME market – yet the need for new methods for releasing working capital is clear. One of great virtues of digital banking and the online platforms is that they enable companies to finance only those receivables they wish to finance, rather than having to discount their whole sales ledger

  • What is the value and driving forces for single invoice financing from customer standpoint?
  •        How does the product fit comparing to other available solutions?
  • Investments in technology – which technologies, who provides them, what would they enable  funders to achieve that cannot be offered easily today?
  • Platforms vs. individual alternative lenders – pros and cons?
  • Is there sufficient real-time information available to allow better credit underwriting to occur?
  • Does receivables finance need regulation to make it work better for customers, investors and other stakeholder?
  • The elephant in the room: what will be the regulatory response for significant losses to unsophisticated investors?

Moderator:
Igor Zax, Managing Director, TENZOR LTD

Panellists:

David Parsons, Regional Director South and Midlands, SECURE TRUST BANK
Chris Dark, President International, C2FO
Conrad Ford, Managing Director, FUNDING OPTIONS
Sarah Gannon, Director Business Development, DEMICA

The webcast, hosted by Commercial Finance Association (CFA), the international trade association dedicated to the asset-based lending and factoring industries and will take place on 4th  of November 11 am EST/4pm GMT.

Why is the percentage of secured transactions that are insured five times higher in Europe in the USA?  And what can we learn from the difference?
Credit Insurance can bring up strong opinions, and often we hear most about it from the insurance experts themselves, or from lenders who want to share a horror story.
Igor Zax will offer an unbiased overview of common misconceptions about credit insurance, and mistakes that are often made.  He will explore the reasons (right and wrong) why it more popular in some markets and less so in other, and the ways to structure programs for various purposes (both export and domestically). Zax will also map credit insurance among other available tools (from both corporate and financial institution prospective).
